We all have a brew-loving friend who raves on and on about the best breweries in town, different varieties of craft beer and nerds out over APVs and IBUs. He knows his IPAs from lagers and gets a bit huffy if you mock his beloved PBR. Sound familiar? If you ever need to get that person a gift, we have just the thing that may help you. We put together our Ultimate Beer Lover’s gift guide to satisfy your most beer crazed friend or fam.
Fun fact: a beer lover is also known as a Zythophile.
Have a beer-loving friend who finds fault in every brew no matter how good it is? If the sound of “This is good BUT…” causes involuntary eye-rolls, you can silence them for good by gifting them their own beer making kit. This homebrew kit by Northern Brewers is great for beginners, so your buddy can’t exactly screw it up.
#2 - Beer Bottle Insulator
Calling all bougie beer bottle lovers! Ditch the tired old King of the Hill style beer koozie and gift your favorite beer lover a sleek, eco-friendly bottle insulator. It guarantees to keep a cold one frosty for hours so they can sip at it while they’re working in the garage or in their yard.
#3 - Beer Map
How does a beer snob gloat about how well-travelled they are? Why, using a beer map of course! With 69 beer cap holes, they can prove they drank their way across the country. The snug holes will fit any standard beer cap. So if it’s craft beer or good ol’ Bud he wants to parade around, he can!

#9 - Roaster Rack
A beer lovers gift guide would be incomplete without grilling tools. With barbeque season approaching, consider gifting this highly-rated beer can chicken roasting pan.
